*Reviewer note: This is a dark series that doesn’t hold back on tragedy. You have been warned. Although other books in this series fit the romance genre, this one does not. None of them can be read as a stand-alone novel.
As the review chair for a guild, we get submissions from many authors. My reviewers get to pick what they wish and can return it if they feel uncomfortable with the book. Some may feel triggered, some worry after reading the blurb. I, on the other hand, read everything, and thank goodness for that! If that hadn’t been the case I would have missed something very special.
I have read Ozzy and Wally’s books, and have had many reactions to these stories. I couldn’t wait to read this from Doc’s POV. I knew it would be tough. But Doc’s book has opened more feelings than I would ever imagine. Kudos to his author.
Atul, nee Doc, now becomes a zombie. He has been against drugs as he tries to work with some of the kids in emporium. We learn he has lost much, he is a very complicated person, and now wishes Oblivion after finding Wally dead on the field. His brother, Avi, brings him back to the city. With London, Avi’s assistant, he begins the alphabet of drugs with Doc to try and help him overcome his loss. This is the most loving part of the series as Atul and London find each other, and we now learn all the deepest secrets Doc has had. Wow, what a read. After 3 books, our author lets us love Doc, and Doc is humanized.
But alas, again our author’s warning comes to speed and we are left bereft, stunned. You must read this. The Pandemic comes as a poisonous cloud! Book #4 will be Jace’s POV. Rowan, save me from having nightmares.
